| An Education
An excellent education in the history of cinema. It is of course just the view of one person, Mark Cousins, other people might have a different opinion as to the most significant films in the history of cinema. But that doesn't invalidate Mark's view with his wide breadth of knowledge. See the connections between previously unrelated films and film-makers.

This series concentrates on the films and film-makers that have shown a passion for the medium and which advance new techniques. There aren't many run-of-the-mill films included in this series and when they are included it's just by way of comparison with the real subject of that particular lesson.

The series also takes a truly global view, looking at films and film-makers from around the world. It doesn't just focus on American and European films and film-makers like so many other series do.
